Mystery injury forces Kreuzer out of game early

Carlton were left without ruckman Matt Kreuzer minutes into the first quarter of Friday night's game against St Kilda.
The 29-year-old was hurt when he laid a tackle in the first 10 minutes of the game and left the ground immediately, complaining of shortness of breath.
The Blues' doctors called for the paramedics on the boundary line to join them down in the rooms to treat Kreuzer but he did not have to leave the venue.
Blues football manager Andrew McKay told Channel 7 at half-time that they were not exactly sure what was causing Kreuzer the problem but they were going to take a conservative approach.
Carlton have been forced to use young forward Charlie Curnow in the ruck as a result with support from Harry McKay, Patrick Cripps and Liam Jones.
